work being performed: crowd out

Influences for Lang’s Crowd Out encompass a wide range of public singing and vocalising, including the excitement created by football chanting – a common theme being the sense of community created through ‘performance’. The result is an entirely new kind of piece and a serious musical work that anyone can perform! A BCMG Sound Investment, Spitalfields Music and Berlin Philharmonic co-commission,

Crowd Out will be performed in Birmingham, Berlin and London in June 2014 under the baton of internationally renowned choral conductor Simon Halsey – with each organisation building its own ‘home-grown’ community to rehearse and perform the piece. Crowd Out has been written so that anyone can take part, including those with no musical background or training, and for the world premiere performances at Millennium Point BCMG will be recruiting 1000 voices from across Birmingham from early November 2013.
